President: Brandon Marson
Hello, my name is Brandon Marson and I am a third year Business and Entrepreneurship student at Vesalius College. I am half Italian and half Trinidadian, but I was born and raised in the United Kingdom. My hobbies are fitness, football and gaming. As the President of the Vesalius Student Government I will make sure that you have the college life you desire and deserve. If you encounter any issues whatsoever, my team and I will be more than happy to help.
Internal and Academic Affairs: Grace Metheney
Hello, my name is Grace Abigail Metheney. I am in my second year of studying International Affairs here at Vesalius. I was born and raised in Canton, Ohio in the United States, and spent my time there learning French and volunteering as a tutor. After graduating from high school I decided to study politics and explore the opportunities here in Brussels, and VeCo was the perfect fit.
I look forward to representing you this year and will do my best to help make student life here as enjoyable as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or academic issues, or just approach me in person for a chat! I love the community here at VeCo and am honored to be a part of helping it grow more connected.
Social Affairs: Alex Smits
Hey, I’m Alexander Smits or Alex for short. Although I’ve only been at Vesalius for one year, I’m going into my last year of college after transferring from the University of Colorado, Boulder. While at Boulder, I studied International Affairs and am now enrolled in the Global Business and Entrepreneurship program. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and spent my summers in Belgium visiting my dad’s side of the family in Antwerp and traveling around Europe.
Throughout high school, I hosted parties for up to 400 people, not only for my school but for areas around Los Angeles. I’ve also interned for events and festivals, and this summer I completed a program with the Los Angeles Sports and Entertainment Commission.
After two years in Boulder surrounded by the great outdoors, I decided to return to a big
international city, only this time in Europe. At first, I was looking at schools in London and Barcelona which is where many students from the States end up, but I’m pleasantly surprised by my decision to study in Brussels. I love the international aspect of both Brussels and Vesalius and appreciate the school’s case study approach to learning.
While Belgium, more specifically Brussels, doesn’t get the attention it deserves, it’s a great place to be. After all, it is the capital of Europe. With that being said, there is a ton to do on weekends and if you feel the need to leave town, there’s plenty to explore only a short train ride away. Feel free to contact me for any suggestions, or if there’s anything you need during your time at Vesalius, please feel free to reach out through Facebook or at VeCo. I’m looking forward to meeting and connecting with all of you at our upcoming social events!
Social Media: Claudia Egavian
My name is Claudia Egavian, I’m 22 years old, and I’m a third year Business student at Vesalius College. I was born in the United States but quickly moved back to Lebanon, where my parents are from. I lived in Beirut, Lebanon for the first fourteen years of my life and then moved to Brussels. After graduating high school, I applied and got accepted into Vesalius College. VeCo has offered me so much. I have been able to meet amazing people from around the world, learn in English and learn about business, all while being in the capital of Europe. Its small classes and amazing professors make the college so unique and worthwhile. This year, I have the pleasure of being part of the Vesalius Student Government as the responsible for social media. I will be making sure to keep you up to date with all the latest happening at VeCo. As well as being responsible for social media, I am someone that you can always come and talk to. My team and I will always be there for you, so don’t be shy!
